0 Reviews
International migration is increasing for a variety of reasons, and since the 1970s there has been more people seeking to migrate to, or find refuge in, richer countries than the latter have been prepared to allow. The ILO has been encouraging countries to adopt policies to create employment opportunities in countries of emigration and thus reduce the need to migrate to find employment, while the UNHCR has promoted voluntary repatriation, and more recently attempted to address the root causes of refugee outflows.
